This month he looks at WWDSI SAINTwriter, Transvirtual Technologies's PocketLinux, Aduva Director, Merlin Software Technologies's Arcana, Metro Link's Metro Motif, Century Software toolkit for embedded Linux, and Applied Data Systems's Tandem."

"World Wide Digital Security has released SAINTwriter 1.0.2, a report generator for its Security Administrator's Integrated Network Tool (SAINT). The companion tool makes output from the security tool easier to understand for all levels of expertise, from technical staff to executive management. SAINTwriter provides graphing and tabling tools, more than 50 configuration options to design your report, and six predefined report types to get you started. It runs on Linux and all flavors of Unix. It is priced by the number of hosts on your network starting at $150 for up to 25 hosts."

"Transvirtual Technologies has finally released its PocketLinux application environment for Linux-based devices. It is designed for resource-constrained devices such as personal digital assistants, smart phones, and other mobile applications. Developers can now write mobile applications using a framework that will run on any platform running PocketLinux. The software includes the Kaffe Java virtual machine, an XML engine, and a frame buffer graphics library. With version 1.0, PocketLinux now supports Compaq iPaq; the Casio Cassiopeia E-105, E-110, and E-115; the NTT DoCoMo Sigmarion,; the IBM Workpad Z- 50; and the Vadem Clio. More platforms will be announced in the future. The package is downloadable for free from Transvirtual's Website."
